I have this set plus a few more sizes. Love them, especially the shape of the handles. Do they stay sharp as long as PMV-11 blades or come with perfectly flat backs? No. But they are a very reasonably priced alternative to LN and Veritas chisels, which are about $100 a piece right now. Another reviewer said the backs were way out of flat, but that was not true for me. Didn’t take long to flatten them at all, especially compared to my previous Two Cherries chisels. Those were all over the place. I will say one peculiar thing about them is a couple of the chisels dulled very quickly the first time I used them. But hone again and then they stay sharp for much longer with each sharpening after that. I would compare these to Ashley Isles chisels in terms of fit and finish (I have there butt chisels). Not super fancy, but very well made.
The backs of tjese chisels are not flat on the worst kind of way. It's almost as if they put a back bevel on them at the bactory. Not worth the time it takes to flatten them.
